Kahuzi-Biega National Park: Gorilla Trekking in DRC

The Kahuzi-Biega National Park was founded in 1970 by Belgian photographer and naturalist Adrien Deschryver and is named after two extinct volcanoes inside its boundaries, Mount Kahuzi and Mount Biega. Kahuzi-Biega is one of the country’s largest national parks, covering an area of 6,000 square kilometers (2,300 square miles). It is one of the remaining refuges for the uncommon species of Eastern lowland gorilla (Gorilla beringei graueri), which is classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List.

Know Before You Go

Near the town of Bukavu in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo lies Kahuzi-Biega National Park. There is a good road that leads from Bukavu into the park, but you have to ask for permission to go in. To accomplish this, one must approach Kahuzi-Biega National Park and ask for an invitation letter. To ensure the safety of everyone visiting the park as well as the park’s residents, these procedures are absolutely essential. Militants from the Mai-Mai Raia Mutomboki group abducted 27 individuals from the park in March of 2018. A few weeks down the road, they were let go. The security situation in Kahuzi-Biega is still reasonably quiet, so tourists can enter after they’ve been cleared, briefed, and given the necessary permit, even though this incident happened.
